Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. Pupil Premium is designed to ensure that funding is available to tackle disadvantage and reaches the pupils who need it most.
Primary schools are given pupil premium funding for:
- Children in Reception to Year 6 who are, or have ever been, entitled to free school meals based on their family income: £1345 per pupil, per school year
- Looked-after children (LAC) defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority: £2345 per pupil, per school year
- Children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority in England and Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order: £2345 per pupil, per school year
- Pupils in year groups reception to year 11 recorded as Ever 6 service child or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence: £310 per pupil, per school year
For 2021-22 we will receive £173,675 in Pupil Premium Funding.
We periodically review and update our Pupil Premium Strategy (see below). It was last reviewed and updated in January 2021.
